Duilio Cambellotti

[Italy] (b 1876/d 1960)

"Duilio Cambellotti was an Italian applied artist, illustrator, painter, sculptor and designer who played a role in the Arts & Crafts and Art Nouveau movements, and whose influence was social and political as well as aesthetic and artistic. He is recognized for his versatility across a spectrum of visual and design disciplines (..).Cambelotti received a diploma in accounting, but soon after receiving it he enrolled at an applied arts education program at the Industrial Artistic Museum in Rome, where he learned metal engraving. He also traveled to Naples, Athens and Istanbul to learn more. (..) Cambellotti was also drawn to the visual vocabulary of Art Nouveau. He produced illustrations in that style for magazines, books and newspapers, and his furniture design (he was known for "Cambellotti lamps" and tables) is considered emblematic of Art Nouveau concepts. (..) Yet another medium he that suited his sensibility and talents was stained glass, and from 1910 into the 1920s he exhibited notable stained glass works.(..)
